The mission behind SIMMS fishing gear: keep anglers dry, comfortable and safe.
No matter when or where your next fishing expedition may be, SIMMS wants you to enjoy it to the fullest.
Unlike most companies in the industry, SIMMS focuses exclusively on fishing gear, including fly fishing waders. That’s because John Simms, the founder of the company, was a fly fishing guide. He wanted to provide his colleagues with a better, smarter way to perform their duties. He accomplished this by developing premium-quality gear that incorporates the latest fabric technologies – along with the practical touches that every guide appreciates.
In other words, fishing gear that allows guides to be drier, safer and more comfortable.
The company consults with fishing guides, and designs all gear to meet their demanding needs. SIMMS realizes that if they develop fly fishing waders that guides can wear every day for two years without developing leaks, then those waders should last a long time for typical consumers.
SIMMS waders are made with GORE-TEX®.
After extensive testing, SIMMS concluded that GORE-TEX® - with its breathable, durable material – provided the best protection and comfort for anglers.
That’s why all SIMMS waders use this material. In fact, as the only wader manufacturer in the United States licensed by W.L. Gore & Associates, SIMMS is able to get an early look at the next generation of GORE-TEX® products, and can integrate them into their fishing gear.
As the video shows, if you’re serious about fly fishing, you’ll want to be in SIMMS waders, jackets, vests, boots and other gear.
After all, SIMMS is the choice for professional guides. Shouldn’t it be for you, too?
